Event Producer/Manager - major outdoor events

itison is Scotland’s number one deals and events service, helping over a million members across Scotland and the North of England discover great new places to go and things to do in their cities, from five-star hotels to brand-new restaurants and local favourites.

We also own an expanding programme of annual world class ticketed events; see GlasGLOW as an example www.itison.com/glasglow  With unparalleled creative, marketing and in-house expertise, we’re looking for a mid to senior level events specialist to join the team and help expand our events.  

If you love our events and understand what it takes to make an event experience exceptional, we’d love to hear from you.

This position is initially a 12-month contract, with the potential of a long term, permanent role.

What you’ll be doing

Our model is to create and fund world class unique events, each with their own execution plan, business model and delivery teams usually made up of internal itison teams supplemented by the best freelance technical and creative talent around. This role is to join our internal event team at a senior level, based in our Glasgow head office. You will be the key person responsible for producing and managing our world class events.

What to expect from the role

A lot of fun and reward, but also hard work – you’ll need to thrive in a fast-paced environment, be able to think on your feet and deal with the occasional curve-ball.

You’ll need to have the core competencies we’ve asked for to do this role and have a passion for delivering unique and magical event experiences.

Skills

You’ll have:

  • Minimum 4 years' experience of working at a senior level on major events, ideally ticketed to the public

  • A desire to go the extra mile and make every event unique, magical and nothing less than a 5* star experience for each and every event goer
  • A hands-on approach to problem solving and a curiosity to learn – we create our events from scratch, so we have to learn fast, often whilst on site!
  • Strong leadership and a brilliant motivator – working on site can be tough, you’ll be responsible for galvanising great teams and maintaining our approach for each itison event crew to have as good an experience as the event goers.
